Short Story Point of View Prompt
Name:
Period:
Point of view is the perspective from which a narrative is told (generally, first person, third person
limited, and third person omniscient.) Authors deliberately choose a point of view for specific reasons: it
could affect plot, mood, characterization, or a reader’s involvement in the story. After reading “The
Landlady” by Roald Dahl as well as “The Possibility of Evil” and “Charles” by Shirley Jackson, compare
how (not WHY—don’t use ‘because!’) the point of view in each story affects one or more of these
elements for that story. Use evidence from all three texts to support your response.
